It seems that most serious Christians are well aware of the importance of earnest prayer, fasting and giving themselves to reach others. The problem is a lack of motivation. Where does consuming passion come from? This message explores the source of sustained passion, namely, what we call the burden of the Lord. Tears are the fuel of revival praying. Revival begins when one individual or a group of individuals begin to see the true condition of people and weep over it. Unless we allow God to show us the severity of the danger people are in we will never weep. We must come to grips with eternal realities like the great judgment of God and ultimate hell for those who are not covered in the righteousness of Christ. Much is discussed in this message of the portrait of God described in Scripture compared to the pop-view of God as soft on sin. When we begin to see God as He is we begin to see people as they are. This is the beginning of revival.
